Norwegian Aurora Borealis in HD

HD Aurora Borealis in Norway

An aurora (plural: aurorae or auroras) is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (thermosphere). The charged particles originate in themagnetosphere and solar wind and, on Earth, are directed by the Earth’s magnetic field into the atmosphere. Aurora is classified as diffuse or discrete aurora. Most aurorae occur in a band known as the auroral zone which is typically 3° to 6° in latitudinal extent and at all local times or longitudes. The auroral zone is typically 10° to 20° from the magnetic pole defined by the axis of the Earth’s magnetic dipole.

Alexander Tsiaras: Visualized Conception to birth!

From Conception to Birth - Fertilized Ovule

From Conception to Birth - Fertilized Ovule

In this TED conference Alexander Tsiaras takes us in an incredible journey through the springing of human life, following sperm up to conception and as of there in a beautifully illustrated journey with cutting edge electronic visualization and mapping up to the moment of birth itself.

Alexander Tsiaras: Is an artist and technologist, Tsiaras participated in developing scientific visualization software to enable him to “paint” the human anatomy using volume data. He incorporated a company — Anatomical Travelogue to use his experience and knowledge for medical imaging and content production. The recipient of numerous awards, including the World Press Award and several Art Director’s Awards, Tsiaras and his work have been featured on more than 120 covers of magazines including LIFE, TIME, New York Times Magazine, Discover, Smithsonian, GEO and the London Sunday Times Magazine. He is the author of “From Conception to Birth: a Life Unfolds,” “Architecture and Design of Man and Woman: The Marvel of the Human Body, Revealed,” “The InVision Guide to a Healthy Heart,” and “The InVision Guide to Sexual Health.”

Tsiaras has lectured at many conferences including the National Library of Medicine (NLM/NIH) Scientific Visualization Conference, TED, TEDMED, Ink Conference (in association with TED India), Molecular Imaging 2020,  and Medicine Meets Virtual Reality (MMVR). Tsiaris has also lectured with Stephen Hawking at the MIT Media Lab.

Documentary: God and the Universe!

String Theory: God and the Universe

String Theory: God and the Universe

Throughout the history of human kind, from the understanding of our world as being flat, to string theory and evolutionary darwinian theories, science has fought against the prejudices of religions. Currently, through advances in theoretical physics, we are as close as ever to unveil the hidden equations that would unify the very large with the very small, quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory. However, there is a conceptual battle that has been going on since the dawn of civilisations between science and religion, as we draw closer to answering some of the fundamental question dealing with the origins of the universe, the pitch for this war is as confusing and blurry as ever. Where does science stop and metaphysics and the need for a transcendent being and religion start?
